Seau was an amazing player, a future Hall of Famer in my opinion. I just hope he will be remembered for the great things he did on the football field.

Ironic how good he was on the field, busted up finger and he said tape it and put me back in. Working out at 4:00am before anyone else was at the training facility. Then he "quits" on life and quits on his family....weird. Gave it ato the game, but gave up on life. Sad, sad, sad.

The problem is the tough man warrior syndrome .... those kinds of people commonly find it very difficult to wade through emotional baggage, especially depression. The most difficult phrase in their vocabulary is "I need help" ..... the fear they will no longer live up to their own image and other peoples' expectations. It's ironic because they display all the courage in the world on the gridiron, but don't have it when it comes to asking for help. They privately carry the sadness around as long as they can until one day the need for assistance just snaps them in half, breaks their spirit and they take their own life.

Yes, I too think that people's opinions should be allowed and encouraged. But in my opinion factless assumptions should be challenged. If someone makes a comment that I find to be out of line or incorrect then I'm going to challenge that person's opinion by giving them my opinion.


Challenging someone's assumptions leads to solid discussion and learning. It is a good thing.

The only thing I was speaking out against is the idea that someone who has a different opinion should not be allowed to share it. That is the antithesis of a discussion board. It stops people from taking part in discussions and pushes away new participants. It should be reserved far more serious transgressions and handled by the mods.
